CAMERON HIGHLANDS: Minister of natural resources and MIC President, Datuk Seri G. Palanivel came under fire by no less then the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah this week for his apparent negligence relating to the Cameron Highland’s eco-disaster.
“It is wrong for the Sultan to say Palanivel did nothing,” said an MIC source, “he has suggested planting little tufts of trees in the hope they grow enough to eventually cover the barren hills.”
However, previous Works Minister, Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu had a suggestion for his former MIC deputy, “you need more then a few tufts to cover up cleared hilltops,” he was quoted as saying, “I suggest you allow the jungle that remains to overgrow, then you comb it over the top of the hill’s bald spots. It’s a little extra work to get right, and you need to be careful to maintain it in strong winds, but soon, people will really notice the improvement!”
